Evening, dudes!

The "Is the Dude an Introvert?" thread got me thinking quite a bit about Dudeism's significance, not just as a philosophy, but in a broader social context.  Now I'm wondering if there might be a correlation between those who embrace a Dudeist lifestyle and those who exhibit Type-B personality traits.  Allow me to explain...

Very generally speaking, there are two categorical umbrellas under which most people's personalities fit; Type-A personalities are characterized by ambition, organization, competitive drive, controlling or manipulative behavior, social climbing, and "workaholism."  

These are the folks who traditionally call the shots in Western society, rising to the top of the business world, and ESPECIALLY in politics.  Unfortunately, all that fussing over work, social status, and "keeping up with the Joneses" means that Type-A's are at greater risk for heart disease, high blood pressure, and other stress-related health problems.

Type-B personalities, on the other hand, are characterized by an easy-going, laid-back approach to life.  Type-B's don't care for confrontation at all; they'd rather get what they want through friendship, sharing, and cooperation than a never-ending race to the top.  

They see life, not as a race or a competition, but as a fun-filled, mysterious journey shared by all humankind, wherein the destination means far less than the exciting experiences picked up along the way.  If his or her neighbor has a nicer car or a bigger house, this is far less likely to trouble a Type-B, who doesn't see possessions as any indicator of human worth. 

Type-B's try to live by their own rules as often as possible, but as their letter implies, they usually end up playing second-fiddle to Type-A's in matters of business, industry, statecraft, and public policy.  It's not that Type-B's are apathetic, or can't be dynamic leaders - even remarkably persuasive and successful ones.  It's just that they often see little or no incentive in playing societal games (in which the decks have already been heavily stacked to favor Type-A behaviors), since involvement often means stress, and stress is emotional Kryptonite to the Type-B.

So, I guess what I'm blathering about boils down to this; since society basically rolls on a Type-A lane, how do we, as Dudeists, help reshape society to be more amenable to Type-B behavior, while avoiding the pitfalls of Type-A hierarchical frameworks, which can either assimilate and corrupt us over time, or crush our fragile and idealistic spirits?

We could debate about the philosophy of society all day.

It's a jungle out there...Good luck.

Just live by example. The way I see it is.......Just let them burn themselves out. Most of them will get bankrupt, go to prison, embarrassed through some scandal, even suicide. Then whoever is left and willing can see and ask, how do these Type B people have peace and happiness with very little. And how can I?

One who is a Dude must before all things keep constantly in mind...the fact that he has to take it easy.

Here's an idea! ;D Have someone take the Myers-Briggs personality test and answer the questions as The Dude would answer them. http://www.mypersonality.info/personality-types/
Then post the results here.

I took this test about 10 years ago and came up INFJ Counselor. Took it again 5 years later and scored the very same.

Anyone here feel they could answer the questions exactly like The Dude?

My wife is a psychologist and I've taken the MB several times over the last 15 years. I've never gotten a different answer- INFP.


Quote
INFPs are imaginative idealists, guided by their own core values and beliefs. To an INFP, possibilities are paramount; the realism of the moment is only of passing concern. INFPs see potential for a better future, and pursue truth and meaning with their own individual flair.

Typically unconventional, INFPs often develop an offbeat personal style and enjoy expressing themselves with creative pursuits like writing or art. They value originality and want to be authentic and individual in what they do. Following tradition holds little appeal for the INFP, who would prefer to invent something that feels unique to them.

INFPs are usually flexible and accommodating, and can often see many points of view. They usually try to support other people but will react strongly if they feel their values are being violated. INFPs especially hate being steamrolled, and want an open, supportive exchange of ideas.

INFPs are sensitive, caring, and compassionate, and are deeply concerned with the personal growth of themselves and others. However, they also tend to be independent, soft-spoken, and reserved, and can sometimes seem aloof, especially to new acquaintances. They prefer to seek depth in relationships where they feel a real connection.
From what is Dudeism trying to liberate us?Thinking that's too uptight.

To what state of being is Dudeism trying to bring us? Just taking it easy, man.

Cool dude, not that different from infj. ;D
But the question is what would The Dude score on the test?

Anyone here think they could reply exactly like The Dude?

Again, I'm gonna go ahead and say, the dude wouldn't score. Too much work.

See, thats your answer.

The dude wouldn't take a test like that. Too much bullshit layered on top of the rest of it. Say what you will about psychology and all of that, no offense to anyone honestly, but it's all just estimated guessing at best. That's what we all do, The Dude wouldn't have someone answer his personal questions, and insight to the journey that is the dude. It's something of a self discovery. He wouldn't take the test, he's the dude. And there should be a scoring for the test for people who refuse or don't take it. 

DUDE. (check mark that for me, professor)

You got something there Rev Koog-meister dude!
Had not thought of that.
But that's pretty much the reason I didn't try taking the test for The Dude myself...sounds exhausting!
The Dude would not take the fuckin' test! Who gives a shit! Can't worry about that shit man.

Fuck it! ;D

Even if he did take the test..he'd just assume that was like, someones opinion man, and not take it to heart.  

I have a feeling though, just generally speaking, that The Dude, and a large majority of Dudeists would be in the INF category, with the most differences coming in the final category.  Those just tend to be your more relaxed population groups.
